6:10 am
that is going to be the story around san francisco and the peninsula through the morning is the low clouds are forced to rise over the coastal hilltops. mostly cloudy skies. cool temperatures and for the north bay hills and hills oath of san jose there is the chance of seeing a few more isolated showers. all day sea breeze and low clouds keeping our temperatures down for this time of year. we're going to see highs in the mid 60s for the valleys for most places. 50s closer to pacifica. near 60. yes, that first pitch coming up just before 1:00 this afternoon. does look like we're going to be looking at some drizzle out there. light rain at times. winds southwest. 10 to 20 miles per hour. north bay and tri-valley, highs in the mid 60s once again. the pattern looks like it's going to stick around for the next few days. into friday, drizzle at times around the peninsula and coast. sierra thunderstorms, a possibility, into friday afternoon. the holiday weekend, things start to improve. if you like 70 degree temperatures, should manage that. probably more so by sunday into
6:11 am
monday. see some low to mid 70s around south bay. not much change the tornado watches around san francisco. staying in the low 60s. less in the way of drizzle and light rain. dry weather and slight warm up as we head through the memorial day weekend. light rain could be causing issues for the morning commute. >> we have a few issues including the rain and drizzle. here though looks like i'm on the scene. this is where bob is at the scene here. this is bob. look at the damage and diesel spill and dump truck involved in that crash after the pursuit from daly city. this is why this portion of san jose avenue is closed near flournoy off of 280. the your crews are on scene. all the diesel spilled, this could take well into the morning commute. look at the map. crash scene and this is the map area. sflans and just south of there where it gets busy through daly city. san jose avenue. that's john daly boulevard, mission street. it could be affected by reroutes. we'll track this throughout the morning. bob is on-screene.
6:12 am
we will track that for part of your peninsula issue. the second part, bay bridge 101, the crash at grand avenue is clear to just one lane down and possibly that could be cleared but in south san francisco down toward sfo because of an earlier crash which was blocking your two left lanes. the rest of your bay is fine. looking at smooth and predictable commute. south bay, no issues bay as far as anything expected. we'll look at the bay bridge toll plaza. metering lights are on. i wanted to point out the slick roadways. rob was talking about the drizzle. back to you. >> we see it behind you there. thanks a lot. 6:12. bottled water industry in hot water this morning. the boiled down to our drought. >> plus, look at the mathematics of the nfl coming up in business.
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
we're starting to think that scott mcgrew has a thing for janet yellen. >> he promise it is we sit through it we will talk football. >> you do not think the fed minutes are as exciting as the nfl. we got the fed minutes yesterday, guys. the internal notes from the littest federal over markets committee. it shows the chance of an interest rate hike any time soon are low. probably fall at the earliest. the other good news, the fed says it's not too concerned about the hiccup in the economy last winter saying that looked temporary. wednesday's news hikes are not coming any time soon helped push the dollar lower. this is good news if you make something for exports, chevy car or grow wheat or make computers. okay. that's it for monetary policy. >> that's okay. i enjoy interest rate talk. >> that's good. that's it for now. we'll talk more about it later.
6:16 am
let's talk about the nfl. as you well know professional football is going to move the point after touchdown line back to try to make that event a little bit more exciting. if you don't know football and some people don't you get an extra point for kicking the ball but you get two extra points for running the ball into the end zone. but kicking here is so easy, coaches opt for the sure thing and it's boring. mathematicians at m.i.t. tried to figure out with the new rules how likely would it be that the kicker would succeed. this is the formula. how often will a coach opt to run the ball with the new formula instead in put another way, is the rule change going to make the game more interesting? the answer is no. the formula says it is less likely the kicker will succeed. that makes sense. he goes from 98% at the two-yard line to 93% at the 15-yard line. still 93%. two-point conversion rs running it works out less than half the
6:17 am
time. nfl coaches, the paper say, hate risks. they're going to take that easy one point over the more difficult two-point just like they do now. so really doesn't matter how far ba back you get it, guys, unless you get it ridiculously far back and the two-point is easier. >> they were so close in nailing this because, yes, they moved the kickback but if you move the run in, start at the 1 yard line instead of the 2 yard line for the two-point conversion you might convince coach toes try that instead. >> blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. >> all i know is once the amazing touchdown touch happens you the go ahead and go to the rest room or get more nachos because whatever is happens after that is going to happen. >> it's just noise. new hot button issue relating to drought in bottled water. many are angry at the bottle watering companies. they're getting their h2o from public land.
6:18 am
>> we are hoping for every last drop. meantime, natural springs all over california which provide water for the bottling industry. no one really knows how much water being used. a lot of people though want answers to that question. water bottlers are facing a flood of criticism. >> the governor created a plan but nothing was said about water bottling or fracking. >> starbucks has already been bottling the ethos water in california. the company recently decided to change the policy and announced it's going to find a new source outside of the state of california in the next six months. >> all right. there you go. north bay, tilt your head upward, drizzle in your face. first, live look at san jose. clear here. >> could we even fill up a water bottle, rob? you're saying we got a little bit of drizzle but maybe not enough. >> a little bit in san francisco. it could be enough if you're very patient.
6:19 am
>> right now tsds mit is measur as we show you the view in san francisco right now. there's some mist on the lens there. enough that it's running down right now. san francisco some wet roads for you. seeing this around the peninsula and daly city, around the bay bridge toll plaza and east bay, too. that is the way the morning is starting in san francisco. take a look at san jose, we've got mostly cloudy skies. but not too much in the way of drizzle or at least like that. like we're seeing in san francisco as we look for some light rain at times. especially around coastal hilltops if air is forced to rise and drop drizzle and light rain at sometimtimes for the mo commute. hilltop showers at times, too. this pattern is going to stick around for your friday morning commute before we begin to see changes approaching the weekend. we've got the clouds and the drizzle. all day sea breeze, winds are increasing as we get into the evening which will help to keep the temperatures running not in the mid 70 wrz we should be this time of year for valleys but mid 60s for most places inland.
6:20 am
lots of 50s across the board through mid morning and urchl lunchtime, sunny breaks around the tri-valley and santa clara valley with numbers in the mid 60s and highest days running cool. 67 degrees. ten degrees below average in san jose. mid to upper 50s around pacifica. you saw the light rain at times for san francisco. for the north bay, mid to upper 60s around the tri-valley today. and for oakland, coming up tonight, 6:00. head out to oracle arena, the chance of the splash brother showers indoors at oracle coming up tonight. for your holiday weekend, plans are going to see the light rain to move on. a little more sunshine. notice sunday for the south bay and north bay, temperatures climbing in the 70s. the pattern should hold cooler as we approach memorial day on monday. warmer weather on the way. timing good for your weekend plans. to see how things are affecting your morning commute, here's mike. >> looking over toward the bay bridge toll plaza where we have the light rain. good illustration of the slick
6:21 am
roadways if gray skies, drizzle that will likely hit your windshield north of the san mateo bridge and backup that's there. as we look at the golden gate bridge across the bay looking at this but we have slick roadways to clouds though not down to the deck. not a fog situation. watch for affects. so far you're okay. here's the concern. just north of the city, waldo tunnel we got word of a crash right here. northbound 101 so it's counteder commute. it is near the waldo tunnel that will be a distraction because there's a car in the middle of roadway right now. i'll track that. so far southbound commute is just fine through drizzle san rafael and the golden gate bridge. there's bay bridge backup. the crash 101 right around sfo is clearing from ground avenue but the slowing clears up as we're down to just the slow. the rest of the bay moves smoothly. no neighbor surprises. the tri-valley and east bay, southbound 880 slows a bit. we are minder that san mateo bridge closes starting friday at 10:00 p.m. and this will go through on through memorial day weekend. back to you.

6:48 am
hilltops, that's enough to ring out drizzle and light rain. we have a slight chance of hilltop instability showers. maybe up there around the north bay and east of san jose for the afternoon and on going showers and thunder showers toward the sierra. we've got the clouds, cool air and ocean air conditioning cranked up later on this afternoon. all those factors combining to keep our temperatures down out of the 70s again today. mid 50s through mid morning. around lunchtime we will see temperatures climbing in the low 60s inland. a few sunny breaks at times but still quite cool around morgan hill. 65. 67 in san jose. notice the light rain and mist at times into san francisco. we got an early start to the giants game. 12:45 this afternoon. similar to what we saw last night. a little bit of drizzle and light rain possible at times as the game goes on. another cool day there in san francisco into the north bay and tri-valley for this afternoon. highs in the mid to upper 60s. now towards oakland this evening we'll see some misty skies outdoors. and splash rather showers
6:49 am
indoors for that game. you will see if you head out to oakland, cool around game time if you're going to parking lots there close to 60 degrees at oracle and we will see a few lighting rain showers on going as the pattern that we're seeing today is going to linger into friday. so that could give us a little bit of drizzle and light rain at times. as it gets towards the weekend is low going to lift out. the temperatures will rebound for the south bay and tri-valley and north bay. low to mid 70s as we start the weekend and through memorial day monday temperatures will cool a little bit. but certainly a lot more mild than the temperatures we will be seeing here for the next couple of days. >> mild traffic flow here. this is the build for san jose northbound 101 at the 680/280 interchange. typical flow as far as the pattern goes throughout the south bay maps. south 17 right around the summit heading out of the area towards santa cruz. we do have a crash blocking one of your two lanes. meanwhile, as we look north of the silicon valley, southbound side of 880 shows the volume
